Living In: Wilton


Share Info About Wilton
Living in Wilton, Connecticut, isn't for everyone. Not that we all wouldn't WANT to live here: with its large expanses of open land and literally hundreds of spectacular old homes--built in the 18th and 19th centuries, lovingly restored and packed with contemporary luxuries--Wilton is consistently near the top of those nationwide Most Desirable, Best Places to Live lists. It's just that all of the above makes living in Wilton a dream only a select few can actually realize. Wilton is a mid-sized town, comprised of about 27 square miles, and with a population at a bit over 18,000. Wilton is located in Connecticut's Fairfield County, in the southwestern corner of the state, and is bordered by Weston and Redding to the north and northeast; by Wesport and Norwalk to the southeast and south; by Vista, a hamlet in the Westchester County town of Lewisboro to the west; and by Ridgefield to the northwest. Wilton is a suburban community in which many residents commute elsewhere for work, to Norwalk, Stamford, and, of course, New York City. Grand Central is about an hour and twenty minutes away by the Danbury line of the Metro North Railroad, which stops at two stations in town, Wilton and Cannondale. Living in Wilton means access to an excellent public school system, with small classes, a solid college-acceptance ranking, and first-rate sports teams at the high school level. As in many Fairfield County towns, Little League baseball is a big deal here. Although Wilton doesn't have the Long Island Sound, there are a number of popular country clubs. Notable Wilton residents include Ace Frehly, David Letterman, Patty Hearst, and Charles Grodin. The Wilton town center was (tastefully) expanded about 15 years ago to include several restaurants and cafes, interesting boutiques, a serviceable supermarket, and a four-screen movie theater.
